Play • 56 min

In this Q & A episode of the Demystifying Diversity Podcast, Daralyse and AnnaMarie delve more deeply into the topics discussed in episode six, Developmental Disabilities: Exploring the Importance of Agency in Advocacy.

They explore the wondrous ways that non-typical thinkers and learners are able to create and innovate in the world, and how deleterious it is when structural inequities deprive non-typical learners of critical resources. In this episode, AnnaMarie opens up about herself and her family, sharing the challenges they have faced and the insights she has gleaned from personal and parental experience.

Daralyse and AnnaMarie stress the importance of learning how to disseminate and receive information in a variety of ways. They share the harsh reality that structural inequities keep many individuals with disabilities from being recognized and they explain the importance of “It is not about us without us” in advocacy.

In this episode, you will see that there are no clear answers, but rather, what is important is to focus on the quality of our questions.
